"Art was my life." - Mabel Hewit, 1980
Mabel Hewit produced charming color woodcuts in a contemporary style. Multitalented, she also printed woodblocks on fabric and produced lithographs, watercolors, ceramics, and enamels on metal. This collection contains two scrapbooks in which Hewit compiled correspondence, catalogs, newspaper clippings, and awards detailing her interactions with the regional arts communities. One pertains to Cleveland, most notable the museum’s May Show, while the other scrapbook shows her dealings with art shows in Parma, Youngstown, Columbus, and Pittsburgh.
